Random Bits

                                                          I hope you had a great weekend.
                                                         It was windy and cool here.....
                                                         hoping it warms up soon.
                                                           I am enjoying some bits
                                                        of spring color in a sunny
                                                        window in our library while
                                                        I wait for some spring beauty
                                                        in our garden below.

                                                             It won't be long before we have
                                                             lots of spring beauty in the garden.

                                                             Some pretty pinks
                                                           My youngest granddaughter and I
                                                           painted the dollhouse and a pretty
                                                           aqua color and had a little tea party.
                                                         This little bedroom got a recent
                                                         makeover as we removed the toile
                                                         wallpaper and painted the walls
                                                         cloud white but more on this later.
                                                           A cheery spring tea

                                                        I love stripes and pastels.
                                               We spent our first night of the season
                                                      at our cottages watching the waves
                                                      roll in with whitecaps. We don't usually
                                                      have the whitecaps on the south shore
                                                      but it was so windy on Saturday.
                                                            I am making some curtains today
                                                      for the little bedroom as it seems too
                                                      cool and windy to enjoy gardening

                                                                    Thank you for stopping by,

Dear Carolyn, it always tickles me to see your cottage and it's loveliness! You mentioned cottages, do you have more than one? I noticed the cute doll teapot, what a special grandmom you are! Enjoy the cool spring and will wait for your lovely gardens! Sandi

Loved all your random bits and that aqua dollhouse with the ruffled skirt lady teapot is so precious!

Love it all! The colors are just so yummy, especially the aqua and peach.. and pink of course! Your beach cottage is so dreamy and just love the blues and whites there. What a wonderful place to be able to visit and spend time at!

Hi Sandi,
Thanks for your kind words and visit. There are two little cottages where we are and my daughter and her family bought the other one and fixed it up themselves.I hope to share some pictures soon of it.

Thanks everyone for your visit and nice comments.
Have a great day!
